Tarot Correspondences – Major Arcana

Tarot is a huge part of my practice as a whole and I love incorporating cards in spells and rituals. The cards can be a physical or metaphorical representation of what you’re trying to accomplish during spells and rituals and can give your practice extra oomph.

Below are my personal correspondences for each of the Major Arcana cards, broken up between element, plant, crystal, and moon phase. The plant category can contain flowers, herbs, or fruits any of which should be accessible should you want to use the card for spell work. The crystal category can refer to an actual crystal stone, a gem, or a mineral.
